O'Leary: Do Wellbeing Stars Challenge to help others

8 Apr 2021

Broadcaster and children's author urges youngsters to create 'Wellbeing Week' plan based on acts of kindness

Children across England and Wales have been thinking of and carrying out five acts of kindness over a week as part of the Premier League's Wellbeing Stars Challenge.

The challenge asks five to 11-year-olds to create a "Wellbeing Week" plan of activity that will boost the mood of their family, or of people they know in their schools or community.

By doing so the children could win their school a special prize. 

Get involved 

The deadline for entries for the Wellbeing Stars Challenge is Monday 19 April, less than two weeks away, so the broadcaster and children’s author Dermot O’Leary is calling on children to get involved before the deadline, either from home during their school holidays or from school.

"A 'Wellbeing Week' is five kind actions that boost the mood of others," says O'Leary, a big Arsenal fan. "You might want to do something to help one of your family maybe, help out at home or read to a little brother or sister.

"We need you to tell us what kind actions you carried out by submitting your 'Wellbeing Week' plan to us."

Three schools will receive a visit from the Premier League Trophy for taking part in the Challenge, as well as the chance to access some incredible Premier League rewards.
